AN AMAZING new family attraction opened to the public at the weekend.
It has been more than a year in the making but Braydon Manor Farm, in Braydon, has finally opened its Maize Maze.
The five acre puzzle is more than six feet high and its creators are challenging people to come along to see if they can make it to the middle.
“We think it’s a decent challenge for people,” said Sian Wildeboer, 32, who came up with the idea.
“We could have made it harder but this one is certainly not easy. Maybe next year we can increase the difficulty.”
The maize was first planted in May and has taken several months to get to its current height.
Sian had wanted to open the maze last year but the weather prevented that from happening.
However, with much more favourable weather this time around, the maize has grown higher than was initially expected.
Sian said: “I was hoping for four or five feet but with the good weather it has really shot up in the last few weeks.
“I used to play in maize mazes when I was younger and really wanted to create one for local people.
“My dad had a field and said we could use it. He grew the maize and using Google Maps cut out the shape of the maze.”
It is hoped the attraction can stay in use until Halloween but it will be dependent on the weather.
The maze is open seven days a week from 10am until 7pm.
